"Be a Memory Maker" by Stacey Wooddell Imbimbo

I love reminiscing about the past, looking at old pictures or videos, or recanting a great moment.
My husband and I enjoy talking about when we met, how he proposed, finding out that we were pregnant, and having our kids.
Talking about it and helping each other remember facts is so much fun.
Now that we are parents we get to help make wonderful memories with and for our kids.
For me, I can get all caught up in doing something "Big" with the kids to create a fun memory.
Not that there is anything wrong with doing a big vacation or such.
Sometimes its the simple things that make great memories.
This past week we told the kids that when daddy comes home that we would have family movie night.
Family movie night is not a brand new idea, but for us it was a first. My kids are 2,3, and 4 and are just now into sitting through a movie.
Frozen pizza, popcorn, and a favorite snack made that night extra special.  We pulled our king size mattress into the middle of the living room and snuggled all together while enjoying this simple moment.
Having the whole family together sharing the moment will make a great memory.
It doesn't have to take a lot of effort, but make it a point to get the family together.
Play a game, cook a meal, go for a walk, or enjoy family movie night.
Make each moment count...they are wonderful memories.

So teach us to number our days that we may get a heart of wisdom. - Psalm 90:12
